Today's Stitching

Before I head off to bed I want to share with you my stitching for today. This was a quick stitch that I started this afternoon and finished this evening. Next month, I am taking a class at Stitcher's Crossing in Madison, Wi with Lori Markovic of La D Da! This is the project we are going to work on - the stitching had to be done in advance; we will do the finishing in the class. It's going to be a needlebook.

It would seem as though I have a lot going on in February - can't wait!

That is a very nice La D Da design and it will make a lovely needlebook. A class is an excellent idea for some of these finishing techniques.

I love La D DA designs and this one is gorgeous. I had to comment when I seen the shop in Madison, I didn't know about that one, but I do go to Lynn's of Madison. Where is this one located? Something great happens up here in the north and I miss it, lol.

I took a class from Lori a few years back. I enjoyed her class very much, and the project was wonderful. Looks like yours will be, too. Don't forget to share the finish with us!!

What a project! What you prepared for the class already looks gorgeous, and I'm sure the finished needlebook will be a beauty. I'm so looking forward to seeing the finished piece.
